  • South Facing Garden
  • Additional Converted Barn
  • Ample Parking
  • Cellar


An elegant and attached Grade II listed house with Georgian features and proportions. Offering a private and enclosed south facing garden, ample parking and versatile converted barn.

A former farmhouse of stature and grandeur, Dairy House was built in 1805, constructed of local rubble stone elevations under a tiled roof, the Georgian double fronted façade brims with classical symmetry where large south facing sash windows with working shutters flank the front door with fanlight over. It is listed as being of architectural Grade II importance and in many respects is the epitome of late Georgian village architecture. The property has undergone a thorough programme of renovation works in recent years to include a second floor conversion and key upgrades to the services. Internally, there are a number of charming features including a very handsome staircase, window shutters, fireplace surrounds and ceiling cornices.
The front rooms are all of a lovely proportion and the property becomes more cosy to the rear, with a well fitted farmhouse style kitchen and study/snug to the rear of the property. Moulded doors, open fireplaces and an oil fired range provide the period and lifestyle detail, while the wide corridors on both ground and first floors offer plenty of elegant space.  A cloakroom and utility space complete the grond floor, together with cellar access from the kitchen. An added dimension is the second floor, comprising a flexible landing room and ensuite loft bedroom, perfect for overflow accommodation, teenage den or B & B accommodation subject to consents.
A two-storey converted barn lies to the side of the driveway entrance, utilised as a workshop and office/hobby room with a separately metered electricity supply, telecom and night storage heating, but easily adaptable as storage or ancillary accommodation, subject to the provision of further services and the necessary consents.

Agents Note
There is a small area of flying freehold with the attached property.

Dairy Farmhouse is conveniently situated in the centre of this rural village and is well placed for the many amenities on offer, including the mainline railway station (London Waterloo 2hrs), Co-op convenience store, village Church, primary school and doctor's surgery with dispensary, and the village hall offers space for community clubs (bowls, youth, mums & toddlers), while the recreation ground has a tennis court, 2 football pitches and skate park. A big attraction of Templecombe is its accessibility, being situated close to both the A303 and the A30 with fast routes east and west towards the motorway network. The mainline station is an obvious draw, while local comprehensive shopping, cultural and leisure amenities are found close by in the towns of Sherborne, Wincanton, Shaftesbury and Yeovil. To the south, the World Heritage Jurassic coast is within easy striking distance. The area is renowned for its schools, both independent and state and the surrounding countryside, much of which is an area of outstanding natural beauty, is a playground for sporting and leisure pursuits such as walking, riding, cycling, golf and field sports. There are village cricket clubs close by and sailing and other watersports are readily accessible on the south coast.

The gardens are an absolute delight, predominantly laid to the front of the property, south facing and fully enclosed. Within the grounds, there are various areas of lawn, split by gravelled pathways and an abundance of well stocked beds and borders, alongside some fine specimen trees. An ornamental pond is a central feature with a summerhouse positioned to enjoy the setting. A courtyard garden is accessed from the kitchen, a pleasant area to enjoy a morning coffee. Side access provides a useful log store. There is parking for several vehicles both within and outside double wrought iron gates leading to the road.
